My Name is Mike. I have worked in the healthcare industry for over 10 years developing and using soft tissue techniques that have helped people become pain free in record time. I am Licensed in Occupational Therapy, Certified Massage Therapist, Post Re-hab Conditioning Specialist and Pilates Fitness Instructor.
After reading an article about "Dr. Dot " on CNN.com I quickly sent her an e-mail outlining my background, training, and experience working with musicians. Dr. Dot invited me for an interview and, after reviewing my credentials and performing a hands on evaluation, asked me to join her team.
Being a musician myself, and working with many, I know that a diagnosis of Repetitive Strain Injury of the arm and hand can be a musician's worst nightmare. In addition, the rigors of being on the road and performing every night can bring about a host of other muscular problems. No musician wants to think that his or her career may be handicapped or even over due to pain and decreased mobility. In order to help musicians, I have integrated the most effective techniques that I have learned over the years into an innovative treatment method which focuses on the individual musician's special healthcare needs. My method will >restore mobility to injured muscle tissue, manage pain, boost overall performance and endurance, and extend your career. If you are experiencing nagging aches in your thumbs, stabbing pain in forearms, or if you wake up in the middle of the night with arm, back, or neck pain I have the techniques and experience to help rid you of your pain quickly. I will help you get out of pain and back on the stage.

He provided a table, towels etc which made it very easy to work with.
Very on point and definitely made for an amazing show at night - thank you again!
